The Simon and Garfunkel Story, a 50th Anniversary Celebration show, can be seen at Derby’s Assembly Roons on Friday, February 7, from 7.30pm.
Has it really been 50 years since the most successful folk/rock duo of all time recorded their first no 1 hit single The Sound of Silence?
The Simon and Garfunkel Story is currently the biggest and the most successful No 1 touring theatre show celebrating the lives and career of folk/rock sensations. Featuring West End, award-winning leading man Dean Elliott (Buddy Holly in Buddy - The Musical) and a full cast of talented actor- musicians, The Simon and Garfunkel Story takes you back through the groovy times of the 1960s.
It tells the story of both Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, from their humble beginnings as rock n roll duo Tom and Jerry, right through their massive success, dramatic break-up and finishing with a stunning recreation of the 1981 Central Park reformation concert.
Using a huge projection screen, the show features both original photos and film footage while a full live band perform all the pair’s hits including Mrs Robinson, Cecilia, Bridge Over Troubled Water Sound of Silence and many more.
Tickets, priced at £19 (concessions £17) are available from the box office on 01332 255800 or online at www.derbylive.co.uk
